Nicira Network Virtualization Platform (Nicira NVP)

Nicira NVP is network virtualization software that manages an abstraction layer between end systems and the physical network infrastructure and enables the creation of logical networks that are independent of the network hardware.

Nicira lists the following as the key components of the Network Virtualization Platform:

  • NVP Controller Cluster, a highly available distributed system that manages all the virtualized network components and connections.
  • Management software, an operations console.
  • RESTful API that integrates into a range of Cloud Management Systems (CMS), including a Quantum plug-in for OpenStack.

Nicira makes NVP available through a usage-based subscription model.
